Big Lake

5 posts in this topic

I live right next to Big Lake and have fished it some over the previous summer. All I have been able to find are a lot of small bass and small pannies. Has anybody fished this lake much and see any decent pannies or larger fish of any sort (other then carp)?

I've fished this lake very frequently during the winter. There are some nice crappies if you look for them. The sunfish quality has really gone down over the years. There can be some pretty decent walleye fishing as well. Lots of pike with some decent ones in the mix.

Get away from the crowds and do some exploring and you'll find more quality fish.

Good Luck!

There's a lot of nice fish in there, just gotta know where to look! But, I'm not giving out that info since I have a camper on Twilight Acres Resort. Gotta keep my honey-holes to myself ya'know! grin.gif

Which side of the lake is that resort on? Is that the one with the semi public access for boats and ice fisherman that you pay a couple bucks to use?

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test    Tried to take a pic and flash wouldn't work on phone      Cret

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.
